The balance must be paid six weeks prior to the start of the rental period. Non-payment of the balance on or before the due date shall be construed as a cancellation of the contract by you and the terms of cancellation shall apply.
For bookings made less than six weeks prior to the start of the rental period, the full balance is due at the time of booking.
In the event that you need to cancel a confirmed booking, this must be done in writing and a cancellation charge will be due as follows:-
|No of days before start date||Cancellation Charge payable by you|
|More than 60 days||Full Deposit|
|42 – 59 days||50% of cost|
|31 – 41 days||75% of cost|
|0 – 30 days||100% of cost|
Once a booking has been confirmed and the deposit made, should you wish to change the date of the holiday to another available week this can be done but an additional fee of £50 will be charged.
CHANGES TO YOUR HOLIDAY
In the unlikly event that we have to make changes to the booking (e.g. it suffering damage that requires repair), I will refund all sums paid by you and this will be the only obligation or liability to you in such circumstances.
PERIOD OF HIRE
Rentals commence, unless otherwise notified, at 3.00 pm on the day of arrival and end at 10 am on the day of departure. (I may be able to arrange more agreeable times with you depending on time of year and which property is booked). Please observe these times as I would prefer for you to arrive to a beautifully presented house! On your departure day, I need time to be able to get the house ready for the next guests, so I do ask you to depart the property on time. Your help with this is appreciated!
NUMBER OF PERSONS USING THE PROPERTY
The number of persons occupying the property must not exceed the maximum number stipulated in the brochure/website/booking form. I reserve the right to refuse entry to the entire party if this condition is not observed.

RIGHT OF ENTRY
My husband, I or any person required for property maintenance shall be allowed the right of entry to the property at all reasonable times on reasonable notice for the purpose of inspection or to carry out any necessary repairs or maintenance.
The property is non-smoking. If you do smoke outside, please dispose of cigarette ends responsibly.
Guests must accept responsibility for their own and their children’s safety.
I am happy to return any left property but may charge postage and packaging – this will just about cover the time in relocating the items or items and sending them to you. For heavy items, I reserve the right to charge more.
